    Not yet, I was trying to figure out how difficult it is before purchasing the power board...

    Not yet, I want to know how difficult it is before purchasing the power module.

  • marrrrcia May 15, 2010

    Part #: 0500-0507-0240 (does that help?)

  • marrrrcia May 15, 2010

    $89.95... is it easy to install?

  • marrrrcia May 15, 2010

    Thanks... could you give me detailed instructions. I will purchase the part next. Would like to know that after I get the part, if I have any difficulty, could I still ask you for help?

  • marrrrcia May 15, 2010

    Let me tell you what happened first... one night (in the dark) I went to connect my laptop to the computer. I used the wrong plug (service one) and the TV went black, completely off, nothing worked to turn it on again, I figured it was just something that needed resetting... but after I took it to a repair guy to see it, he said it was the power module and since the TV is a relatively inexpensive one, that he didn´t recommend I repair it. I figured that maybe I could do it if I purchase the part... I´m pretty curious myself and have been known to put things apart and back together again to fix =o)

  • marrrrcia May 15, 2010

    Thanks so much, I´ll order the part and I will contact you by submitting another comment in here. Have a great weekend =o)

  • marrrrcia May 16, 2010

    I went to pick up the HDTV from the repair place and the guy now tells me that is the main board assembly that is bad, that when I connected my cable to the wrong inset it burned it. How difficult is to change that, I found a rebuilt one for $163.

  • marrrrcia May 17, 2010

    Found a rebuilt one 3632-0132-0395R, it is the main assembly board that the tech said that went bad. How difficult it is to replace it?

  • marrrrcia May 17, 2010

    Where do you recommend I purchase it. I saw it rebuilt one for $129 + S&H.


    So you tell me it IS really easy, just unplug/unscrew the old one and plug/screw the new one?

  • marrrrcia May 17, 2010

    You've been such great help. I'm going to order it and I will write you back if I have any problems. But one question lingers on my mind... how come VIZIO doesn't plug the Service input if when touched burns the TV?

    It is actually pretty easy since it is all plug-ins connectors.


    Just a few screw to remove and those connectors.


    Do you have the board number?

  • Jacques Marin
    Jacques Marin May 15, 2010

    Yes it looks like the right module.


    How much do you pay for it?

  • Jacques Marin
    Jacques Marin May 15, 2010

    Yes it is very easy, beside i`ll help you with it if need be.


    Was looking at some parts reseller and found this;


    http://www.encompassparts.com/products/?...


    The top one is the replacement for the original.

  • Jacques Marin
    Jacques Marin May 15, 2010

    Yes you`ll still be able to reach me through this post.


    You`ll see when you get your part that is pretty straightforward and self-explanatory.


    But just out of curiosity: what tells you that the power supply is faulty?

  • Jacques Marin
    Jacques Marin May 15, 2010

    O.k if a tech. looked at it, thats good enough for me.


    And you`ll see that it will be easy.


    So let me know when you got your part.


    Cheers

    Did you find that board on ebay?


    Can you give me the number on that board?

  • Jacques Marin
    Jacques Marin May 17, 2010

    If this looks like your main board




    Then it is all plug-ins except for the audio out i.c that may have a bracket and/or screws.


    Just a few more plugs than the power supply.

  • Jacques Marin
    Jacques Marin May 17, 2010

    Also : all those input connectors will have screws that holds them to the chassis.


    If you have a phillips(star) screwdrivers that should be no problem.

  • Jacques Marin
    Jacques Marin May 17, 2010

    There is also this place that has your board for 149.95$


    They call it re-certified , its the fourth one from the top.

    Jacques Marin May 17, 2010

    I don`t have any favorite place as long as they give you some warranty against DOA .


    The choice is your`s for price and convenience.


    And yes , just screws and connectors.

My vizio will not come one


Yes, there is main AC fuse in the power supply module board, labeled as F?.
Power supply may have gone out due to short circuits in the power supply or in the backlight inverter board.

26" LCT HDTV Backlight Problem


It can be that the inverter is not getting the 24vdc fromt he power supply module, check for that first, you can check it at either the power supply termninals or at the inverter board. Look to see if the power supply has any leaking/bulging top caps. Modules are easy to replace, fixing it down to component level is not so easy unless you have proper tools an electronics knowledges.
